The Buddhist teachings on 'definite emergence' (renunciation).
"Without the complete intention definitely to be free from circling (samsara),
There is no way to pacify attachment seeking pleasurable effects in the ocean of circling.
Also, by craving for cyclic existence, embodied beings are continuously bound.
Therefore, at the very beginning seek renunciation."
Lama Je Tsongkhapa
We should not misunderstand this to mean we must give away all our possessions and leave our family, our home or our job. It is about overcoming attachment. Geshe Sherab clearly explains how we can do this ... and why.
